15# NIB Storm La Nina - Market Price?
« on: September 19, 2005, 04:02:40 PM »
Hey guys, I know this topic was brought up several times in the past several years. I was wondering what a #15 Storm La Nina with good specs (anywhere between 2-4 inch pin and 2-4 oz. TW) would go for?

Any idea of how much it would fetch on eBay?
What have Buy It Now Prices started at?
What have recent auctions ended at in the past few years?

Bowling Ball enthusiasts and Storm Fans please fill me in!
Thanks in advance!

Regards, Ramilla Ice

Ram,

I'm no expert, and I don't do a lot of buying from ebay, so you'll have to forgive my ignorance. For me, however, I would probably only be willing to pay around normal NIB pricing for it. Therefore, I'd say somewhere in the neighborhood of $100-130 shipped. Now, maybe there's some kind of demand for these balls of which I am unaware. If that is the case, I guess the sky is the limit. From my experience, however, unless the ball is one that saw huge success, you really won't get much more than the original retail pricing. In most cases, you actually won't even get that. I hope that I'm wrong and that you get a great price for it, but that's just what I've seen in my experience. Good luck selling.

Thanks guys, one of my friends said he could probably get a hold of one. Don't have any details yet, but I think I remember somewhere that the El Nino 2000 and La Nina fetched some pretty nice ending prices in the past few years on eBay.

Oh well, we'll have to see and I'll double check with my buddy...Thanks guys!

I have a original La Nina (NIB)which was first released in Asia before US.  The ball is darker and doesn't hook at your toes.  It has more length and backend then the ones ( more blue) released in the US.
